As another year comes to an end, I want to take this opportunity to thank all of my loyal friends and followers for their continued support. I have met so many wonderful people from all over the world through my almost 3 years of blogging, and hope to continue that friendship. While I don't have anything new to post, I noticed that many of my blogger friends are posting their favorites. I thought I would do the same. Although these are not new to my older friends, my newer viewers may not go beyond the first page so I'd like to share with you my top 10 favorite creations from 2011. They are in no particular order---
Have A Question On How I Did Something? PLEASE READ!
I love to share what knowledge I have. I'm finding it more and more difficult to respond to your questions because some of you are not leaving a way for me to contact you. I am not ignoring those of you who have questions, but the majority of the time no contact information is given so I am unable to respond to your inquiries. If you are serious about me answering the questions you ask and do not have a Blogger account with an email address linked to it, please leave your email address or email me with your question at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will get back with you. If you email me, be sure to put "blog question" in the subject line so I won't think it's SPAM and delete it.

Good Morning...I hope you had a good weekend. Can you believe Christmas is less than 2 weeks away...where does the time go when you are having fun crafting? All of my Christmas cards are done and in the mail. Here are a few of them...I'll try to get back later in the week to post the rest of them. This first pair is made with a Quickutz die cut from felt and a computer generated sentiment. At first I wasn't sure about the black and red combo but I was happy with the way they turned out ---
A simple song sheet found on the internet with a Cuttlebug 3x3 wreath---
I used Spellbinder's Holiday Tags and Holly and Ornament with computer generated sentiment---
A few different embossing folders with the Cuttlebug tree and Spellbinders circle and lacey circle for this white on white card. A touch of colors from a computer generated sentiment---
A Sizzix candy cane wrapped with silver cord. A few Cuttlebug snowflake dies and Martha Stewart tree border punch---
These next 2 are for my husband's great-nephews so I wanted to make them similar. The Santa is a Scrapping Cottage die and the Snow man is a Go Kreate die---
Thanks for stopping by..and as always if you have any questions on the recipe or supplies that I have used in my postings today, please feel free to email me. Even though I am no longer actively blogging, I will stop by your blog if you leave a comment to see what you've been up to. Til next time...enjoy your day!

Good Morning...Happy Black Friday! There is no way you will find me on the streets or in the the malls today...That's just not my thing...in fact you won't find me in the stores until December 20th at which time I will start and finish my Christmas shopping. For those that celebrate Thanksgiving...I hope you had a wonderful day with friends and family. I know it's been awhile since I've posted...we've been out of town, visiting family and having a wonderful time but it sure is good to be back home. Here's a few cards I made before we left but didn't have time to post them. My goal is to have my Christmas cards done before Dec.1st. This first one is for my grandson and done with a Scrapping Cottage die---
This one didn't photograph well, because of the mirror paper, I took it without the flash and it looks a bit dark and dingy. It is for my good friend Gigi's son who have a fascination with mice...EEK!
A plain and simple card done with a Sizzix embossing folder and a QuikKuts die---
This one is a day late and a dollar short. It is for our Disney lovin' friends and I didn't want to post it until they had a chance to receive it. I used clip art for the image---

Hello everyone! I hope you are having a wonderful week! A BIG welcome to my new followers! I have "met" so many wonderful people from all over the world from blogging, I hope you will visit often. I am looking forward to getting to know you. Thank you Kelly from Orange Park, Florida for the sweet comment. We have all been new at one time or another, so please if I can be of any help to you, don't hesitate to ask. I love to share what knowledge I have with others. If you have a blog, I'd love to visit and follow you as well, if you would leave a comment or email me with your blog link, I will be sure to visit you.
Instead of getting ready for our trip north, I am finding myself in my craftroom every chance I get. I'm loving the combination of kraft and red mirror paper. Here's a few cards I've done with that combination. When I saw the Z-fold card The Other Patti Sue made, I knew I was going to have to copy it. Here is my take on the card she created in late September. Be sure to visit her blog, you will be amazed at her work, she is truly an inspiration---
Eunice did using the Shih Tzu Peeker, I knew I HAD to have them. In addition to the ones I had gotten for Halloween, I have gotten a bunch more so be prepared to see them a lot---
That's it for now...Thanks for stopping by...as always if you have any questions on the recipe or supplies that I have used in my postings today, please feel free to email me. Even though I am no longer actively blogging, leave a comment and I'll be sure to stop by your blog to see what you've been up to. Til next time...have a wonderful week!

Good Morning...Happy Friday! I hope you've had a good week and looking forward to the weekend. This is going to be a quick posting this morning...I have spend far too much time trying to get a good picture of these cards...ALL of them photographed horrible...there must be something wrong with the settings on my camera or maybe it's the lighting...who knows but the the colors are all off. For the good or bad of it...here are the cards I've been working on since my last posting.
OK...OK..I cheated on these next 2...same paper...same layout...just different ribbon. I just wanted my Thanksgiving cards DONE! But it shows how bad they photographed---

Happy Friday!!! I hope you've had a great week! Here's a few Thank You cards that I did since my last posting. We will be taking a trip next month and will be staying with my sister in law and her husband for a few days. This is the card we will leave behind for their hospitality. The house image is from The Welcome Home set from The Cutting Cafe and the circle word is computer generated---
That's it for now...I'm still working on my Thanksgiving cards but struggling. I hope to be done by next week and will post them when I'm done. Thanks for stopping by...as always if you have any questions on the recipe or supplies that I have used in my postings today, please feel free to email me. Even though I am no longer actively blogging, I will stop by your blog if you leave a comment to see what you've been up to. Til next time...have a wonderful weekend!

Good Morning...Thanks for stopping by. I hope you are having a GREAT week. Here are the Christmas cards that I said I would post. I hope I have inspired you enough to leave a comment and sign up to be a follower if you aren't already. YOUR comments are MY inspiration to keep posting! I have been having SO much fun but I really need to set the Christmas stuff aside and get busy on my Thanksgiving cards!!! This first card is for our vet using the Scrapping Cottage Shih Tzu die. I had first seen this die on my good blogger friend Eunice's blog and knew I had to have it. I left off the goofy eyebrows from the one to make it look like a Maltese then cut the top knot off the other to make it look like a Peek-a-Poo. What a great likeness to our dogs Charlee and Triskett---Digi Stamp Boutique that I colored with Copics, added a few snowflakes using the 2x2 Cuttlebug Snowflake die and added some Liquid Applique---
